Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed his delight with Real Madrid's triumph in La Liga, and feels it is a worthy champion as it was superior to arch-rival Barcelona throughout the 2011-12 campaign.
Los Blancos beat Athletic Bilbao 3-0 at San Mames on Wednesday to secure the 32nd league title in the club's history, and the prolific attacker admitted that he was "delighted" to add another trophy to his collection.
"I am incredibly happy. This is my first league title in Spain and I am delighted. We’ve achieved our objective and we were all very excited about winning La Liga," Cristiano Ronaldo stated to the club's official website. "The league is even harder when you fight for it with a team like Barcelona, but you feel great when you beat one of the best teams around. We were better than them. We all experience great joy for achieving our objective after fighting for 10 months.
"The league title is what I wanted most. I have two Golden Boot awards at home. It would be nice to win another, but I wouldn’t mind it if I didn’t."
Madrid last won the Primera Division title in 2007-08.
